"How I Came to Write Looking Backward"
by Edward Bellamy
Published in The Nationalist [Boston], vol. 1, no. 1 (May 1889), pp. 1-4.

Short description of the literary process behind the writing of the utopian socialist novel "Looking Backward, 2000-1887" (published January 1889). Bellamy reveals that in the first draft he had postulated a future in the year 3000 and centered his story in Asheville, North Carolina, rather than Boston, Massachusetts in AD 2000.

Published in the USA prior to 1923, public domain.
Transcribed by Tim Davenport for 1000 Flowers Publishing, Corvallis, OR.
